The homeowner armed himself, before investigating a noise. He found 3 thugs rummaging through his living room. He fired a warning shot - the returned fire but missed. He then shot one in the leg.
"It's a bold thing to do to break into someone’s house, “ says Lt. Terry Hastings with the Little Rock Police Department, “but criminals need to realize, you have a right to protect yourself inside the home and people are doing just that now."One guy was arrested. Another guy was shot in the leg, and arrested. The third guy is still being searched for by police, who say they have "good information" about him.
